Bob Welch – Nightmare lyrics

Written by bob welch and J. Carter.

Have you every had nightmares every night
We'll it's been that way since you came around
I'm trying to fight this feeling down
Cause all of my dreams are about you now
What kind of curse make me what you so
Just a need of you that I can't let go

Oh how it's strange what a nightmare can put you through

Yeah it's two in the morning
I don't know what to do
The rest of the city is sleeping
But the nightmare rides on through
Yeah it's three in the morning
I can't sleep without you
In the dead of the night

Here comes a nightmare
Destroying my solitude

Late at night
I can't forget you
It's not psychic
I'm just scare
I could get to sleep if I knew you cared
Instead I'm dreamin' of you
It's the same nightmare
What kind of curse makes me want you so
It's a need of you that I can't let go

Ain't it strange what a nightmare can put you through

(repeat chorus)

I know I should be sleeping
I tried to go to bed
But in a dream I wake up screaming
You're the nightmare in my head

(repeat chorus)
